For this third skill building project, I wanted to do something manual (not so intellectual). This time I chose a skill where I don’t have much previous experience. I took drawing and painting lessons as a kid, but just for a couple of years. After my teenage years, I didn’t pursue my interest beyond the beginner level. Only just three years ago, I tried my hand again at art, and it was for a month and a half.
One of my motivations to learn pen drawing in German is doing realistic portraits. Artists such as Oskar Ukonu are of great inspiration 😀. As this is just a 3-month-long project, I will be realistic… with my aspirations! Maybe it’s not possible to develop a lot of skill in such a short period of time, but I hope this experience will give me a taste of what is possible after investing time consistently in a manual skill such as this.[Read more…] about Skill Building Project #3: Pen Drawing in German (Week 1)
